Abstract / Description of output

Here we present a Bayesian formalism for the goodness of fit that is the evidence for a fixed functional form over the evidence for all functions that are a general perturbation about this form. This is done under the assumption that the statistical properties of the data can be modelled by a multivariate Gaussian distribution. We use this to show how one can optimize an experiment to find evidence for a fixed function over perturbations about this function. We apply this formalism to an illustrative problem of measuring perturbations in the dark energy equation of state about a cosmological constant.
